A WILD DANCE

"[According to Hamman] Nature is no ordered whole: so-called sensible men are blinkered beings who walk with a firm tread because they are blind to the true and profoundly disturbing character of reality, sheltered from it by their man-made contraptions; if they glimpse it as it is - a wild dance - they would go out of their minds. How dare these pathetic pedants impose on the vast world of continuous, fertile, unpredictable, divine creation their own narrow, desiccated categories?"

Isaiah Berlin, 'Hume and German Anti-Rationalism', in: Isaiah Berlin, Against the Current: Essays in History of Ideas, Oxford University Press, 1981, p. 169
